WWII cameras Eyemo Askania and Arriflex 35 test shots now

Recommended Posts

We continue to restore the old movie cameras of the Second World War and shoot videos reminiscent of newsreels of the 1940s on them. We use the American Bell & Howell Eyemo cameras and the German hand crank camera  Askania 1930s. We shoot 35 mm black-and-white Russian film Tasma and German AFFA aerial photograph. Soon we will repair the Arriflex 35 camera of the Third Reich and remove its historical reconstruction WWII. Watch our "military" video review

A comparison of World War II movie cameras is the American Bell&Howell Eyemo, which was shot by Soviet front-line cameramens and the German Askania Z, which shot the pre-war and military newsreels of the Third Reich, in conditions close to combat. Retro movie cameras are fully operational; they are shot on 35 mm film. Agfa Aviafot 200 film. Manual processing. Digitization in 2K resolution.

Stanislav, the Parvo of Jules Debrie and son was conceived in 1906-07, patent application in 1908. Bell & Howell Co.’s Eyemo came out in 1925. The ARRIFLEX was made public in 1937, first examples sold in 1938. Although a certain relation with warfare is obvious, the motion-picture camera’s development is civilian.

We should very much like to read about civilian filmmaking in Novosibirsk. I remember a short you have made with your Parvo. It would be fascinating to see things about permafrost and what happens to the soil during summer.
